In PPR leagues the home-run hitters aren’t necessarily the big fish, unless they get a ton of targets along the way. For instance Antonio Brown caught 129 passes last year – Dez Bryant reeled in 88 – a huge difference when gaining a point for every catch.
So assuming that you are indeed in a PPR league, who should we target to help us to the Fantasy Promise Land? Let’s take a look.
1. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
Was last year’s #1 Fantasy receiver – he caught 18 more balls than his closest rival – 18! Brown has a combined 239 receptions for 3,197 yards and 21 touchdowns the last two years – as reliably and as studly as they come. Don’t worry too much about a dip in production – he has 10+targets in 23 of his last 33 games.
2. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons
Too high? He had 104 catches last year for 1,593 yards (second in the NFL) but his Fantasy rank was lowish because he only scored 6 TDs. That has to change! With all of those catches, more will turn into 6 points. I see another 110+catch year for Jones with 1500 yards and 10 TDs. Matt Ryan knows where his meal ticket is!
3. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Has been terrific since Peyton Manning arrived in town – no reason to think differently about this year. He had 111 catches and 1,619 yards and led the league with 23 red zone targets. Thomas is the undisputed #1 in a high powered offense guided by one of the best QBs of all-time. Expect another 100 catches this year with 1300+ yards and 11-12 TDs.
4. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys
Had only 88 catches last year on just 138 targets – his value comes in his TD potential – Bryant had 16 last year. Dez now has at least 88 catches, 1,233 yards and 12 touchdowns in three consecutive seasons. His overall targets may go up with the departure of DeMarco Murray which helps. He is an absolute elite talent that has a tremendous rapport with Tony Romo which also helps.
Expect 90 catches for 1400 or so yards with another 15 TDs this year.
5. Odell Beckham, New York Giants
Made history last year and has a chance to duplicate it this year. Keep in mind that he only played in 12 games last year – he had 132 targets, 91 catches, 1305 yards and 12 TDs – insane. He had an incredible 43/606/7 on 63 targets in his last four! While we all expect his #s to drop off a tad this year there is no denying this guy’s talent. He should catch 100 balls for 1300-1400 yards with 8-10 TDs this year.
6. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions
Injuries could play a part (he has missed two games in each of the last two seasons) but assuming he’s healthy Megatron is a beast. He has five straight 1000+ yards seasons with a 90/1,467/11 average stat line in those years – as steady as they come. He should catch 90-95 catches this year for 1300 yards and 10 TDs – just barely outside top 5 #s.
7. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers top target is an automatic top 10 PPR pick for me! He was the third best PPR receiver last year and has averaged 1,210 yards and 10.75 touchdowns over the past four seasons. No reason to think he slips much below that this upcoming season!
8. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals
Health kept Green from being a top 3 guy last year but he did manage 1041 yards on 69 catches despite missing all of or part of six games. This after averaging 98 receptions, 1,388 yards and 11 touchdowns in the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
Green is a good bet to eclipse 1300 yards and 10 scores this year – if healthy could be a top 3 PPR guy!
9. Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers
Scored 12 times in Green Bay’s high powered offense and 91 catches and 1287 yards – by far the best slot receiver in the leagues last year. He led the Packers in targets the second half of the season as well. Signs point to another stellar season for Cobb – 90 catches, 1200 yards and 10 TDs certainly isn’t a stretch.
10. T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
Finished with an 82/1,345/7 stat line last year and did so with a hamstring injury bothering him part of the year. Andre Johnson will take at least some of the heat off Hilton this year – he should have more room to run. 90 catches, 1250 yards and 8-10 TDs is likely.
